Dream Valley 91 Lace and Ribbon

Our challenge at Dream Valley is Lace and Ribbon, and we have a mystery prize?

Please pop on over and have a look as the team have created some gorgeous designs, AND we are also running a DT call.

DV 91 Lace_Ribbon

I started with the Justrite Elegant Fronds background stamp, which I stamped with versamark and embossed with white detail powder. I can see this stamp becoming a firm favourite. I then rubbed in the four Tropical Gelatos and blended them in. The versamark acted as a resist so after rubbing it left the gelatos in the background only. I diecut two borders from Our Daily Bread and threaded purple chiffon ribbon through the edges and used them to square the background up a little. The fence is from JoyCrafts. The branch is from Memory Box and the bird and birdbox are from Marianne.

I stamped my Prima Doll onto plain white cardstock and coloured her in with copics. I glittered up her bow, top of her dress, hem of her dress and buttons on her shoe with glitter glue. I made the skirt part of her dress from a piece of scallop edged lace and I stitched it in place as I found that even Cosmic Shimmer glue didn’t want to hold the pleats in place.

I twisted some of the purple chiffon ribbon to form a lead to her toy bird on wheels. I also glittered the wheels of the toy, and glazed her shoes, but that sadly isn’t showing up here too well. A few gems for the flowers on the branch finished it off.
